...Dang! Still a cliche!

 

A recent bout (& folks, I'm down for the count ;) ) of pop music listening has caused

me to ponder the power of the most basic group of harmonies in European-derived music.

 

Any of the following (& more) will rouse in most of us deep memories and all of these have been "hits"; some last week, some 500 years ago.

 

(1) I-VIm-IV-V [repeat ad nauseam]

(2) I-V-VIm-IV [repeat; add nausea]

(3) VI-V-I-IV [petite ala Nassau]

(4) VIm-IV-V-I [replete w/adnoidals]

 

Or we could put them all together :rolleyes: :

 

Scherzo-phrenia

[ I-VIm-IV-V

I-V-VIm-IV

VIm-IV-I-IV

VIm-IV-V-I

Coda: IV-I-V-VIm

repeat & fade ]
